Read about our latest Council meeting
Our Council met in Cardiff today (27 September) to review and discuss items including our Welsh language annual monitoring report, an update on our advanced practice review, and our latest pay gap and Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) reports. And our Chair addressed and answered questions on recent concerns that have been raised about the NMC.
We also hosted our final Future Professional Standards event at The University of South Wales. We spoke to students, professionals, educators, and our partners about how our new post-registration standards support nurses and midwives to provide the high quality care people have the right to expect.
Sam Foster, NMC Executive Director for Professional Practice, said:
“I’m very pleased to have been in Wales for our latest Council meeting. As a four-nation regulator, it’s important that our Council visit different areas of the UK to discuss and decide on key regulatory topics. Where better to approve our Welsh language annual monitoring report, for example, than in the Welsh capital of Cardiff.
“I’m especially grateful to have met many skilled and knowledgeable nurses, midwives and students as part of our Future Professional Standards event. This was a wonderful opportunity to understand how they use the post-registration standards to deliver safe, effective, and kind care. Their compassion and dedication is truly inspiring.
“This visit has given us a better understanding of health and social care across the UK. These insights will help us to improve our role as regulator, for the benefit of everyone on our register and the hundreds of people they care for everyday.”
